ABOUT

We live in the physical world, but, in recent years, we are also partially living in a digital one, at least for some time of the day. I usually photograph in the real one, but with the power of 3D Computer Graphics, I can make my own worlds and photograph in them.
 
CAPTCHA is a very meta body of work with equally elaborate physical and digital pieces. Works are hanging on the wall, through a VR Headset, or your own phone, you can look at their digital coun-terparts, which feature digital avatars of me and my fictional crew on the fictional sets.


For CAPTCHA, I want to illustrate my feelings towards the intersection of science, technology and the human experience within them.

I have not only considered contemporary issues for this series, but wanted to use the most contemporary technology to give the artworks the same hyperrealistic feelings I perceive when thinking about them.
